I
mainly
chose

Asperger's

Syndrome

because
how
often
do

we

hear

of

it?
I thought

it

would

be
a

great

learning
experience

because

Asperger's

Syndrome

isn't

mentioned
much

yet

it
is
a

very

big

on
going

issue.

My
volunteer
work
has

made

me

realize

just

how

special

and
nice
it
is

working

with

these

kids
to
help
them
,
something
I
feel

in

our

American

Society

we

don't

take
much
time
in

doing.
High functioning form of Autism
Affects the way a person communicates and socializes with others
Characterized by various traits
Socially awkward
One sided conversations on favorite subjects
Lack of eye contact
Discovered by Hans Asperger, an Austrian pediatrician in the early 1940's
He noted it as a personality disorder and later it would be found that it is a milder form of Autism
Physical

Product
"Child Development Center" in
Wilmington
Helped children with their daily routines
Shadowed a child with Asperger's Named Hadley
Took notes on how he interacted with the other kids and
what he liked to do.
Put together some stickers and Fact sheets that I handed out in the logo area
for further awareness.
My

Mentor
My mentor Mr. Lukens has been great with helping me on my senior project. He had a lot of great input, and it was also easy to come and talk to him. His older nephew has Asperger's Syndrome as well which helped him connect with me on my project.
What makes a person "Socially awkward"?

Why I chose Asperger's Syndrome?
What is Asperger's Syndrome?
Child Development Center
Child's Development Center helps these Autistic children through art and sensory sections The picture was listed as "Sensory Center." Sometimes, Autistic children have heightened senses, so just trying to get them used to it is therapeutic.
Asperger's Awareness
This picture is from when I set up in the logo area of the school. I wanted to spread word to my peers because aspergers is a prevalent issue. I handed out Autistic ribbons and a fact sheet that had symptoms of Asperger's listed.
The Classroom
Just like in any other classroom, these kids participate in stories and playtime, but they are still building their skills in everything they do through art and playtime. Hadley really enjoyed Mr. Potato head.
Achievements
Fast pacing of my research paper

The sense of accomplishment
Other Symptoms Include
Children with Asperger's may lack empathy for others.
Lack of a filter
Unusual facial gestures or postures
Preoccupied with only a few interests
Unable to recognize different pitches and tones in voice
Hyper-sensitive to sounds, tastes, and textures

When I shadowed Hadley, I was able to record in a journal what I saw from him. I recognized that he did show characteristics of Asperger's.
